I am not a car-hater...




Spotted recently in Uptown, this original Mini-Cooper truck is an example of smart, utilitarian design. Can you imagine if more people drove cars/trucks of this size, how much easier it would be to navigate, find parking, and look good doing it? All you fuckers in your Escalades, Excursions, H2's, H3's, rollin' 22's, get a grip. Vehicles the size of this mini-truck make sense, but I'm not holding my breath for Americans to embrace smaller vehicles. Gas prices will hopefully go thru the roof soon, and maybe the motoring neanderthals will figure it out. Doubtful, I know.

They made a woodsided wagon Mini too. Too bad the government deemed the original Mini's unsafe.

You said "original."

So this was not a conversion of a new Mini cooper, was it?

How cool would that be?!

Very cool.
Look 'mericans no longer go for things like the Ranger (hence the demise of Ford in St. Paul). I wonder if there is a genetic reason for the apparent shrinking in penis size as demonstrated by the continued ginormous vehicle buys?

That's a sweet truck. We also need more Citroen 2CV and VW Things on the road.
